Squad Assemble in Warzone explained

Introduced in Season 3, Squad Assemble is a feature that rewards teams with bonus XP for landing strategically together at the beginning of a match.

It applies to both standard Battle Royale and Resurgence modes, excluding Ranked Play.

When the first member of your squad touches down, a small circle appears around their landing point on the minimap.

Subsequently, your entire squad or most of the members need to land within this zone to trigger the bonus.

There are different types of Squad Assemble, as listed below:

Before diving into the fray, discuss your landing zone with your squad. Pick a specific location on the map, ideally one with decent loot and strategic value.

Moreover, use pings to mark the target area on the minimap for clear visualization.

Constant communication is crucial. Call out landmarks or recognizable features around your chosen landing zone.
